Gyles on Saturday Kitchen

The broadcaster was offered his food heaven or food hell on the show. Viewers at home, however, were the ones who go to vote, not Gyles.

His food heaven was a Victoria sponge dessert, meanwhile food hell was fish with a date puree.

“Heaven is cake for me, cake, cake, cake,” Gyles said, certainly excited by that prospect.

“Hell dates back to my childhood… on Wednesday afternoon we were given dates to eat in a packet,” he said before gesturing that they made him sick.

Fortunately for Gyles, the public voted for him to have his food heaven.

Gyles’ controversial comments

Gyles, who is certainly known for his eccentric and outspoken ways, made a controversial statement recently.

He said the Queen, 95, wouldn’t want to be seen in a wheelchair, declaring them to be ‘undignified’ during a discussion on This Morning back in March.

He made the remark when discussing news that the Queen was making modifications to her Balmoral estate to make it more accessible.

He said: “Her sister, Princess Margaret, was often towards the end of her life photographed in a wheelchair and it felt a little bit undignified.

“The Duke of Edinburgh was very proud of his excellent posture, he exercised every day right until the end and the Queen likes that idea.

“So, she doesn’t want to be photographed in a wheelchair.”
